How about an Internet Sprint whereby we exchange our 1st choices.

That would give us something to do in the next 3 weeks.  Plus, it would
be fun to see what everybody was hoping for.

Aren't callsigns very MUCH a part of contesting!

Not to the extent that most of us have had to put up with this topic
for the last couple of weeks....

I'm going to predict that some of you folks who are changing calls
will get something pretty far down your list and wish you'd kept
your original calls.

OK, carry on -

application had been received @ 11:48 am Saturday by D. Melzer in the 
mail room.  You can also check  Good luck to all.
